I am kinda in the same boat and have been searching for an online TTRPG off and on for a few months. Looking for a open spot for games such as: Zweihander or Numenera on Roll20, FantasyGrounds, and LFG Reddit without any success. Lots of spots of course for D&D but not interested in “super hero, kill, loot, repeat” - nothing wrong with it, just not what I want to play. Looking to play something “low fantasy” or “science fiction” I have considered setting up my own game as a DM and inviting people to play, but that is a bit of study/preparation/work etc as “new” player - at least for games such as those mentioned above.
Really took another look earlier tonight at ICRPG and found this site, joined, and going to purchase the Core Book (Hard Cover & PDF) later today via drivethrurpg. Its hard to ignore how easy this game appears to be, especially the way it allows my creative juices to flow by just grabbing a small stack of random cards and putting together an adventure. I also believe ICRPG would provide an easy on ramp to get family members, friends, and new players - that to my knowledge have “never” played a TTRPG.
I wanted to REPLY because I think we will be able to find a group(s) or maybe start our own (?)
I also in EST so that helps too!
